Feedback on Grateful Palate?

Had a weird experience with Grateful Palate this week.
I ordered their Bacon of the Month Club as a wedding gift for a friend. The club is $120 and the Shipping charge on their site was $75.97. Got a call today from Customer Service. Turns out, the actual shipping charge is $146.90. Customer Service told me their website was incorrect in tallying my shipping cost. The woman who I spoke with was sweet. She explained that the bacon must be sent out 2-day mail, each package is 3 Lbs, there are 12 shipments and the cost is between $10-$15 a package. All that said, $146 in shipping sounds just about right. Sure it's expensive, but it's bacon!

So, here's the ?. Generally, I'm averse to doing business with company's that post incorrect costs. That said, this is a company I want to like and the Bacon of the Month Club makes a killer wedding gift

So, any feedback from people who have done biz with the Grateful Palate?
